the moment he is elected half the people don't like him. so he is going to have -- he is a human being and going to make mistakes. i am praying for our president because i believe that the bible tells us to do so. >> chris: what do you think has been his biggest accomplishment and what are you most disappointed about over these last four ye don't know what te biggest accomplishment would be. i don't know that. my biggest disappointment is the disunity. president obama ran saying i'm going to be a unifier and our molestation is more divided than ever before. i think it is more divided than at any time since the civil war. that is disheartening to me. >> chris: he would say i have tried and you had mitch mcconnell say in 2010 our number one objective is to make him a one term president. how much is he responsible for that? how much is it everybody else in washington? >> i don't blame simply the president. i think there is plenty of blame to go around. i would say this. we need to stop blaming. you can't fix the problem while you are fixing the blame. i have trained leaders literally all

been an election and house republicans are only one part of of washington right now. >> and the president is only one part. the republicans actually passed a budget that -- not a budget, not just a budget but a budget plan that goes out through the year, gives you entitlement reform and pro-growth tax reform and doesn't have to raise taxes, the left wants to raise taxes but you don't have to balance the budget. they have a plan. they've passed it and got re-elected having done that. the senate got re-elected because they never voted on anything. only way they were able to get re-elected. haven't put something forward and the president's plan was an outline that the house and senate voted against. you can't vote you have a mandate when your own party voted against it. >> katrina. >> there was an election. americans voted very clearly for a sense of different priorities than grover norquist has stood for. one was that the richest in this country paid their fair share and i also resist very strongly matthew dowd with the good band-aid and all but what he said about the

on elective officials. we have to get much more active to have a city to respond to the rate of child poverty we should be shamed and nation the strong and kids in poverty don't have the access to success with material and that is the completeness to address and when kids stand up and they say the words liberty and justice for all that it should be a command with a compelling aspiration and to make that real but we are lacking that sense of urgency when i think of great movements in america we were not led by a officials to respond to the leadership in the ground. when we think of voting conversations had rehab and entire presidential debate and the word party is not what we should talk about? i hope we can change the dialogue. i would like to do a balance sheet analysis of the country. the manhattan institute works with us with the balance sheet analysis for every $1 spent on staff it is a multiplier effect. about $1.70 of job creation and also with programs for kids. it produces an economic results so things will change. campaigning for president obama in seattle with it amazing support org

and this particular administration in terms of senates turning over, they're all -- most of them are up for re-election, house is turning over -- about half of them are up for re-election and of course presidential election as well, and so it is very likely of course that this will be reintroduced after all of those changes take effect and hopefully we'll have garnered some support and move forward, so we'll keep sounding that drum beat but tlt be on pause until after january when the new add m*ins -- administrations get all in place, so the problem, this can be really overwhelming, especially if you have not spent a lot of time thinking about this, but i think one of the solutions is just to start with one thing at a time and pick something that resonates for you, whether it's your food or you have kids and you just want to focus on making sure that -- what they're using and taking in is safer, or if it's an area of your life with regard -- we'll talk about this somehow with the fire department or your fire stations or your fire houses or whatever, also reach out to the breast cancer funds, we love q

, especially in the turmoil we saw leading up to this election. the second lowest turnout we've seen. 32% of egyptians came out and voted, which really is having a lot of people wondering where the 68% of other people weren't voting. either they were unwilling or unable to cast their votes. it really is not a strong mandate for the muslim brotherhood and president morsi. they will be happy that they won this constitution, but with such a small number of people that came out to vote, a lot of people are wondering what they could have done differently, especially with the opposition. what they could have done differently to get people out to vote in this constitutional referendum. >> it certainly was so controversial now, i guess, the question is what does this all mean for the opposition? >> well, the national salvation front, which is the umbrella organization for the opposition, will be meeting here shortly. but they really have just two options. one, continue the protesting and continue rejecting this whole process or, two, prepare for parliamentary elections, which will come within tw

weeks after his unanimous re-election aas speaker he faced a mini mutiny in his own congress. they said they would oppose his backup plan to keep tax cuts in place. the speaker saw the setback as a see mantic problem. >> listen, there was a perception created that that vote last night was going to increase taxes. now, i disagree with that characterization of the bill, but that impression was out there. now, we had a number of our members who just really didn't want to be perceived as having to raise taxes. that was the real issue. >> with that the speaker pulled his plan b from the house floor, told the president and senate democrats they needed to come up with something to avoid the fiscal cliff, and then he took off for ohio with a parting blast at the president that went off to hawaii. >> and he refuses to challenge the members of his party to deal honestly with the entitlement reform and the big issues facing our nation. that's why we find ourselves here today. >> the holiday season is beginning to seem a lot more like groundhog day. bh he we return, long-time boehner ally and fello

at ole miss. well, it was not. it was a group of students who didn't like the results of the election, but just a handful of them were throwing out racial slurs, screaming. so that has to be in context. ralph alluded to mississippi today. there's an education presentation, mississippi was, mississippi is. it means they've changed in a way that i think a lot of the northern press was not aware of and was not aware of the racial issue then and probably not aware now. the army had been, thank you, harry truman, the army had been desegregated to a point by the time i got in in 1962 it was flattened out. there was no -- there may have been racism back in the barracks and the tents, but it's not out in the open. alabama pfcs saluted black officers, took the orders from black sergeants. once we left the comfort of the army bases and the posts as we moved south, it was a different culture. that we got into. and, of course, it was a freeze frame, a photograph, a snapshot of rayism that we saw that -- racism that we saw that first morning and continued to see while we were there. so kudos to th
